CORE4703 - Curatorial Projects
How have art objects and images come to “mean what they mean” and what is our responsibility in terms of presenting them in an exhibition context? This is the fundamental question with regard to curatorial practices. In this course the class, as a small community curators, will be presented with the paradigm of contemporary curatorial practice, which may or may not always involve contemporary works. We will parse the elements of cogent and sound exhibitions and discuss the physical, ideological, conceptual and aesthetic relationships that are established among the works in a successful gallery or museum show. We will look at important exhibitions of the past ten years and the ways in which museums/galleries have presented these ideas. We will visit and critique exhibitions in the Columbus area. The final project for the course will be to have the class organize a solo or group exhibition in a campus gallery.
